It’s “All Aboard!” for murder as DEATH EXPRESS!, by Kurt Kleinmann, takes place on the Trans-Continental Express from Los Angeles to New York. Inept but endearing detective Harry Hunsacker and his paid-by-the-hour friend and assistant, Nigel Grouse (along with Lt. Foster of the real police) find themselves trapped on a train headed for murder! Who is the vicious killer determined to slay everyone on board the train? Could it be the Conductor? What about the European starlet, Valentina Benet? Perhaps the murder-mystery novelist is trying out crimes for her new book? And who is the mysterious Mr. Wainwright? Murder and mayhem abound in this delightful tribute to old black-and-white movies.
RadioVizion™ is an alternative technique devised by Pegasus Theatre for the presentation of the Living Black & White™ series of Harry Hunsacker adventures. RadioVizion™ does not employ the trade-secret makeup but instead focuses on evoking the experience and glamour of being in a live radio studio of the 1930’s and 1940’s. Live sound effects, actors at period style live microphones, and costumes suggestive of the era complete the effect.

Here is the text of remarks made by Barbara Weinberger about her husband Kurt Kleinmann after his final performance as Harry Hunsacker on August 7, 2016. "The day has finally arrived. Today marks a milestone in Dallas theatre history. Today, after 30 years of...
Scott Nixon is a talented, versatile actor who came to us with a history of performing in Living Black & White™ shows produced by Mainstage Irving Las Colinas (MILC). It's no wonder he already had an obvious sense of the snappy style required by these productions!...
Throughout the year, we've been counting down the top 30 shows in Pegasus Theatre's 30-year history. The method of selection is quite unscientific, based on the subjective opinions of Kurt and Barb. A show might get into the top 30 because it was especially popular...
Many years ago, an actor who worked a lot at Pegasus Theatre was quoted in the newspaper as saying, "I like working at Pegasus---they feed their actors!" (Walter Hardts, RIP) It's true. We're a bit food-focused! There's actually a fine tradition of feeding actors in...
In 2002, after 17 years of producing our Living Black & White™ shows to sold-out crowds in Dallas, we took It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Murder! to NYC for a limited run. It was an amazing experience! Our Executive Director Barb Weinberger wrote weekly posts...
